Walmart kitties

There are quite a few stray cats living on the other side of this fence next to the Walmart parking lot. The three cats in this picture didn't seem as afraid of me as the ones you can't see hiding in the bushes. Someone is feeding them though, as you can tell from the large pan of cat food there by the fence on the left side of the picture.

Weekend Reflections

What is this strange creature sitting on my car? He is the same little guy I featured a couple of weeks ago here. I took this picture through my windshield after driving several miles with him crouched there looking very determined to stay put. I finally felt sorry for him and pulled over so he could disembark safely into the bushes. To see more fascinating reflections from around the world, visit Weekend Reflections.
